lionlove0903 is on a distinguished road
hi, everyone,

I am trying to solve a film flow problem with interFoam. I have to set small time steps to make sure courant number smaller than one, and it takes very long time to solve a simple problem. So my questions are: Is there a multiphase solver for steady problems? Is it possible to change interFoam into a steady solver by modify its code?

By the way, I am a beginner and I find it is really difficult to understand the code of OpenFOAM. Can you give me some advice about OpenFOAM learning?

Thanks very much!
